Bonus: Use to target the /l/ sound, as in the word "Locks". If your little struggles with producing an /l/ and tends to "glide" and produce a /w/, this book will offer numerous opportunities to practice. Not sure how to elicit a true /l/ sound? Use "Goldie Locks has Chicken Pox" as an auditory bombardment tool: whenever you come across a word with the /l/ sound in it, add extra stress to the sound to emphasize it for your little.
